Coding Style

The Coding Rangers had their first somewhat informal meeting on Jan. 21 to determine a uniform coding style. They came up with the following:

  • Comment as much as you can using /* ... */.
    • At the top of every file, include your name, the filename, and the purpose of the file.
    • Comment on what a function is supposed to do before the function definition.
  • Change to newline once you reach column 80. Nothing to be typed beyond column 80!
  • When naming variables,
    • use single letters (like i, j, a, or v) for counters only;
    • assign the variable a name that best describes what it is used for (but please don't make it too long);
    • and separate words with caps.
      Eg. noOfOrders, not nooforders
  • When naming a function, name it according to what it is supposed to do.
    Eg. void updateDelivery, int setInitialValue, not void Deliveries, int InitialValues
  • Class names must begin with a capital letter
  • Declare each variable in a line by itself. It is easier to comment a variable this way. Do not use commas to separate the variable names if they have the same data type.
  • Eg. correct int i; //To count the number of times in for-loop int j;

    int k; //To count another variable

    Eg. wrong int i,j,k; //How do I separately comment

    int i; int j; int k; //the variables here?

  • Type four (4) spaces over for every block of code. (This is as opposed to tabbing.) For example:
  • main () {

       int x; //Notice the four spaces over 
    int y;

    for (x = 0, y = 10; x < 10 && y > 0; x++, y++) {
           printf("x is %d, y is %d\n", x, y); 
    printf("The sum of x and y is %d\n", x + y);
    if (x == 5)
    printf("We've reached the halfway point!\n"); //Moved four spaces over }

    printf("Hello, world!");


  • Only main () will start at column 1. Tab every block of code four spaces over.
  • Include an empty line after the declaration of variables (see above example).
  • When using operators, make sure to have a space between the operands and the operator for readability.
    Eg. i = 0;, not i=0;
  • For keywords such as while, for, if, else, put a space after the keyword and the expression following it.
    Eg. if (x == 0) is correct; if(x == 0) is incorrect
  • When using brackets, put the opening bracket on the same line as the function or expression that opens it.
    Eg. CORRECT:
    int setSafeEmptyState {

    int setSafeEmptyState


Each member will post updates about their progress on the project. Triumphs, conflicts, and blood and tears will go here.
